May I say, “Ditto?” I’m still reading some excellent titles I started last week — I’m savoring the experiences.

Physical Books: This week I’m finishing Blended by Sharon Draper and playing with vocabulary using Absurd Words: A Kids’ Fun and Hilarious Vocabulary Builder for Future Word Nerds by Tara Lazar.

Libro.fm: I’m finishing African Icons: Ten People Who Shaped History by Tracey Baptiste. My students, colleagues, and I were laughing out loud (LOL) when we read the chapter about Amanirenas (no spoilers!).

NetGalley: I’m still reading Sofia Acosta Makes a Scene by Emma Otheguy. This is such a great book! I’m sure I’ll need a few copies for the library. The main character is already my favorite of 2022.

Have a great week! It’s time to read!

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

IMWAYR: Summer Time!

It’s (finally) summer time! With all the rain we have had this week, I’ve been able to read while I’m not resting my eyes. There are some excellent books out there! Check them out.

On Libro.Fm: The Barren Grounds by David A Robertson

On NetGalley.com: The Ghoul of Windydown Vale by Jake Burt

Physical Books: Stamped for Kids adapted by Sonja Cherry-Paul and Blackout by Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk, and Nicola Yoon

I’m about ready to break into a new stack of picture books, as well. More on those later…
